Indy 4 confirmed!

Jan. 2, 2007by:

Here it is folks - the news you've been waiting for. After rumors started swirling this past weekend that INDIANA JONES 4 was - again - a go, we've got confirmation this morning via Variety. INDIANA JONES 4 has officially been greenlit and will start filming in June! Here's a quick recap of what we know:

- No title or plot announced yet;
- David Koepp will be credited with the shooting script;
- No word yet on release but a summer 2008 date is likely;
- Sez Harrison Ford: "I'm delighted to be back in business with my old friends. I don't know if the pants still fit, but I know the hat will.";
- Sez Spielbergo: "We feel that the script was well worth the wait. We hope it delivers everything you'd expect from our history with Indiana Jones.";
- Sez me: "Fuck yeah!"

So all in all pretty great news. Sure there are the Debbie Downers out there who will complain that this film will tarnish the legacy, Ford is too old, Lucas sucks, etc., blahblahblah, but I'm not buying any of that. This cynical heart is legitimately pumped and officially has reason to get out of bed every day for the next year and a half. Let the casting rumors begin! Bea Arthur as his mother? Richard Mulligan replacing Sean Connery? Emmanuel Lewis? Mr. T? Those Segal twins from "Double Trouble"?? Why am I only casting 80s TV mainstays? I don't know?! I'm delirious with excitement!

PLease everyone heed my warning: Do not get your hopes up. I know, I know its hard considering it Indy and he fuckin rocks, but dont shove those hopes up so high that the movie wont be enjoyable for you.

That being said I cant fuckin wait 'till this movie comes out!

Hoping...

I remember 8, count 'em 8 years ago, being at a superbowl party and talking about "the *upcoming* Indiana Jones 4 movie" over a beer.

Back then it was supposed to be about Atlantis. Wonder if that's even a remote possibility still...

By my count, a minimum of 8 years of rumors...probably longer....we'll see, we'll see.

Here's Hoping....

Harrison is a little old, and Lucas has shown a fair bit of suckage, but I think that with a good script and a focused Spielberg this could be everything I've longed for.

I don't know filmgeek, Koepp was screenwriter on War of the Worlds, and while I thought Spielberg was on the money I didn't think Koepp's end of it was that great.

But, Jurassic Park was great and Koepp is usually very solid, and Spielberg is definitely no dummy. What a relief this is finally getting going. Absolutely kick-ass news.

Well, I just hope they don't f*ck this up. It's never a good idea to mess with trilogies ("Alien," "Lethal Weapon," "Star Wars"), but it IS Spielberg, so ... who knows?

AWESOME!!! It's About Time!

Actually, I think Richard Mulligan is dead so that works in Connery's favour but who cares, I'm in line for this one. Now, all we need is another Rambo movie and I'm happy...
